And for the franchise's next trick, it's our boyfriend Chris Hemsworth aka Thor aka the hot dude from the new Ghostbusters movie. Well done, Paramount. Brava.
According to a press release issued on Monday from Paramount Pictures, Hemsworth is returning to the Star Trek universe to reprise his role as George Kirk, father of Captain Kirk (played by Chris Pine) in the already planned sequel--which has yet to be scheduled (but you can rest assured that it's a sure bet). This is all the information we have right now:
In the next installment of the epic space adventure, Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father.
They had me at Chris Hemsworth.
